sophocleese AMERICAN ATTACKS=PART EIGHT.more still (108* d) RE: AMERICAN ATTACKS=PART EIGHT.more still 18 Sep 01


Bin Ladin might get handed over to a court somewhere outside of the USA. Given the large number of non Americans killed in the WTC, and given the current rhetoric that this was not an attack against the US only but an attack against the whole western world. Working to have a trial in neutral territory might be the most workable compromise.

Two aspects of the discussion surrounding this interest me. 1) We get the usual assumption of sanity as being held only by those who would retaliate, but more people are questioning that assumption. 2) When the planes hit last week the reaction that I heard from many outside the US was a combination of heartfelt sympathy "Oh God! How awful!" and nervous advice "Now, don't do anything rash in return, please." I think this is an indication of how many outside the US see the US.
